We are delighted to share with you the video interview of Rüdiger K. Weng, President of the Board of Directors at Weng Contemporary, on the "10 AM SERIES" hosted by Johann König; who is currently the most important gallerist in Germany. During the one hour interview, Rüdiger K. Weng discussed various topics, including a preliminary introduction to the companies he runs and their activities, breaking it into:

1. The Mother company, Weng Fine Art AG, which deals in B2B dealership. Established in 1995, the company analyzes the art market and caters to its clients - the dealers, galleries, and auction houses, and has sold art by more than 800-1000 artists over the past 26 years. The retail distribution business model is reflected on the website's structure as well, where no artworks are on display; these are only available through the company's partners. The company has seen a 40% growth in revenues in the year 2020.

2. Weng Contemporary (ArtXX AG), our eCommerce platform catering to private clients via our website and other online platforms. The digital company has seen a 30% growth in revenues in the year 2020.

3. Weng Fine Art is the biggest independent shareholder in the art data provider Artnet.

An interesting factor is Weng Fine Art's participation in the stock exchange (currently at a valuation of EUR 55-60 million), as well as the unique way of raising funds through the banks and shareholders, based on the company's track record. As Rüdiger K. Weng has said "We do not broker, what we sell we own and do not rely on investors only. We reinvest the profits, this is the way the company grows and our shares are on a historical high at the moment".

Rüdiger K. Weng embraces the fact that he is fortunate to have a group of board of directors. This offers the opportunity to project transparently to the art industry, which is refreshing, in an opaque art market reality.

On the other hand, Gold tears, which is part of the Utopia series, depicts rows of shiny diamonds on shelves covered with golden foil in front of a golden-beige background. The image is an intense vision of a golden cabinet filled with diamonds, a vision often associated with glorious eternity. But as always in Hirst’s art, the ambiguity is obvious – this cabinet points to the fact that behind all the shiny glittery surfaces there might be nothing, no meaning, and no soul. And hence the desire for eternity is less a promise than a condemnation.

"I can’t understand why most people believe in medicine and don’t believe in art, without questioning either."—Damien Hirst
